Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Bringing The Outside In With Decorating

I am sure everyone is busy getting the gardens and flowers all planted and the grill ready to go, but let's not forget about the inside of your home and bringing in the summer decor. To get your home ready for summer you can bring furniture and fixtures that normally you would think of having them outside into your home. 

Here are a few ideas to help bring the outside in your home. :)

Wrought iron can be used to create a garden or cottage theme space inside. This bench would be great with a nice ocean theme cushion on it and you could sit it right by the front door. That is if you have room there. :) Aardvark Antiques on Etsy has this available. 

Then there is wicker. I love wicker furniture. I think it is so neat and clean and vintage. It is always good inside and out and it cleans so easy too. These two chairs from Vintage Home Goods are absolutely gorgeous! I would love to have them in my house. 

You can bring in some racks and outdoor plant stands too; they are just as functional and attractive indoors as they are outdoors. ForgetMeNotsCottage has this adorable tricycle planter. You can use this indoors or outdoors. I think it is so cute. :)

Pillows always dress up the decor and if you are wanting to have that summery, beach, sunshine look try these pillows. This one is fromFradetFineArt....

And this one is from SeemsToMe23.....

I can't decide which one I like best.....hmmmm.......guess I like them both. 

So as you can see there are many ways to decorate your home in a summer theme. These are just a few ideas, but there are many, many more. The ideas are endless! Have fun!

Happy Decorating!
